Arthur, the Talking Goat is a delightful book about the beautiful, happy goat that lived at Bethleham Retreat and how, when his owner had to move to the big city, he was given a different set of "parents" who would take good care of him on their farm. The way he learns to talk is so sweet and children will love the story as well as the illustrations. I would highly recommend it.

REVIEWED BY: Wayne S. Walker, reviewer with Stories for Children Magazine

What would you do if you had a goat that could talk? Arthur is a white Angora goat who lives on a farm owned by Tom. However, Tom is moving to a city far away, and he cannot take Arthur to his new home. Tom thinks about what to do and decides to put an ad in the paper to find Arthur a new owner. A few days later, he receives a call from a man named Sam. Sam and his wife, Sally, come to see Arthur and decide that he will have a good home on their farm. One day when Sam gets an apple to feed his new goat, Arthur begins making some sounds. Do you think that it might just be possible for Arthur to say a word?

The author, Daisy Cromwell, is a matron at Bethlehem Retreat, which is part of the House of Bethlehem Ministry and Missions International, located in the mountains of southwestern Virginia. Arthur was an actual goat at the Bethlehem Retreat Farm, where he lived with lots of birds, rabbits, squirrels, llamas, chickens, deer, and other animals. Arthur the Talking Goat is the first in a series of books about the animals at the Bethlehem Retreat Farm. The wonderful, full-page color illustrations were done by Daisy's grandson, Cameron L. Paxton. This is a book that all children, especially those who love animals, will greatly enjoy.

Arthur the Talking Goat is a wonderful children's book. Children will enjoy looking at the precious illustrations as they read or listen to the book being read to them. I plan to buy the rest of the series as soon as they are published. Anyone who buys this book will not be disappointed.
